    Yah, it's all about money and selling brand x and it is sad to see so many people led around by the nose by these sanctimonious, self involved, greedy twats.

    Sadly, it is how a lot of information gets disseminated these days and the corporations know this only to well, just another way to mislead the public, enticing them to take sides in arguments that ultimately only benefit the nefarious types that foment them in the first place.

    Social media is becoming more dangerous as time goes on.

    All new hardware suffers from defects especial when at the forefront of technology until matured. It's nothing new and been like this for decades. It's only people with agendas pushing the 2080ti failures as something significant, let's face it this cards been getting flak since the price announcement so any more dirt flinging at it is another win for the nutters out there.

    Also I'm sure Nvidia would have put 1000s of hours testing their design before going into production. My FE card runs about the same temps as my Asus strix 1080ti did so in my eyes nothing wrong with the cooler design, probably just needs a well cooled case.

    Just it all get a bit tiresome reading it, I know it's easy to say not read it but when your into tech it's hard to avoid the BS lol.

    Do they mean FE cards or does it apply to all chips / cards / BIOS (also of AIB partner's cards)?

    only FE cards, what other vendors do is up to them at manufacturing time.

    ah, I expected as much. I just tried another FE from a friend, and it had the same whine wasn't as bad with the stock cooler on but its noticable. I wonder if 3rd party cards suffer as badly as FE card with coil whine.

    Starting to think I got a dud card (Zotac AMP 2x8pin), found my new stability benchmark since 3dmark and everything else works fine. Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition, run at 4k uncapped FPS and watch the ingame opening scene with the crow.
    Cannot get through this for the life of me, unless I knock the power limit % down on afterburner regardless of if there's an overclock or not, PC will always restart without any error messages. Upon rebooting after this crash, I've also noticed some brief artifacting on my second monitor too. My PSU is a Corsair HX 1000w 80+ Platinum and I've never had any issues like this before with my previous 1080Ti, any ideas?

    Yeah same results no matter what, thanks for testing for me though. With the nature of the crash (no bsod, just system turns off and immediately restarts), could this be a psu issue if its entirely related to me tweaking the power limit? I couldn't be topping out a 1000w psu with a 7820x 4.6ghz + this card could I..?

    My first thought was potential power issue.
    Either PSU no longer pulling its weight or a bad connection.
    But that would be for any other card than the RTX series.
    It probably more likely to be a card failure but its worth trying another PSU if you can.
    Perhaps use 2 in tandem to test with.

    Yeah, I'll tinker about inside and see if a cable has come loose at all, failing that I'll try another PSU. The site I bought it from dropped the price by £200 since I bought it anyway so a returns RMA would be in my favour regardless. :p

    Cheers!

    Which PSU? If you are talking about the Corsair HX1000i, then check the unit to see if it's set to multirail or single rail mode.

    It is the HX1000i. I assume that's done through software? I've never had the USB bit hooked up as I've never had an issue like this before and there doesn't appear to be a switch like older units, so I'm pretty clueless. Is multirail better and what I should be aiming for? (Based on my logic that multi = better...)

    Correct. I'm thinking you are using 1 rail to supply the power to the card while in multirail mode. Single rail mode would be able to supply more amperage to whatever needs it.

    Why all this power and Amps questioning lately? 780TI or 980TI OC'ed used more power and there wasn't such concern back then..

    Just make sure you don't use one psu 12v connector (spliter) for both pcie connections on gpu., well I have no idea why would anyone want to use that in the first place.. And yet I saw a few doing it here lol :D

    I'm just gonna keep quiet and go away for a couple of hours since I think something completely unrelated to this may be afoot. Cough.

    Success! Everything seems to be stable. I dunno what the point in the bundled PCI-E cables splitting off into another one with is if it causes issues like this? I used 1 just for cable neatness :(. Gonna try bios mod for 130% power and see if I still get issues.

    Thanks for all the help and suggestions guys.

    Edit: 130% power target working fine, seems to all be sorted now. What a pain in the arse haha.

    haha I did it right all the time without knowing, just because I thought "ehhh what the hell, if you got the cables free" :D
    Corsair HX1200i here, so I would have been able to run into trouble otherwise :D

    If you are single rail, and you're cabling is sufficient, you can use 1 cable. Otherwise, use 2. Simple. :) (If using 1 cable, and the cable itself is very warm, or even hot, then the cable can't handle the load)

    I mean, with that all said and done I am experiencing this flickering artifacting on my second monitor while idling at desktop, which occasionally flickers up on my primary monitor. Games are completely stable and exhibit no artifacting. Tried with both HDMI > HDMI and DVI > DP and still get the same issues.
    RMA ahoooy~
